FFI | Learn Everywhere

Pushing the Boundaries of Education

Friends Forever International (FFI) is excited to expand educational opportunities to New Hampshire students through the NHDOE Learn Everywhere Initiative. This program allows for the delivery of content to continue outside of the classroom through real-world, hands-on, learning experiences.


In June of 2022, FFI was approved for 74 courses totaling 37 credits in 8 content areas. FFI will deliver this curriculum and programming to meet the academic needs of students while offering them opportunities that wouldn't normally be accessible through a traditional classroom setting. All programming is done by incorporating our FFI RECIPE and integrating the values of Resilience, Empathy, Communication, Impact, Playfulness, and Effort into everything we do.
